When we heard that Cold War Kids' Nathan Willett and Matt Maust had a new project in the works with We Barbarians' Nathan Warkentin, we couldn't wait to hear their music. Now under the name of French Style Furs, the trio is getting ready to release their debut LP, Is Exotic Bait on July 8th and have recently released three tracks from the upcoming full-length.
With French Style Furs, the LA natives give their fast paced, high energy tracks an added twist by using the poetry of Thomas Merton for their lyrics. This creative process and inspiration provides each song the inspiring touch of social justice and pacificism that Merton's poems advocated.
Hear the music and art fusion below and then be sure to pick up Is Exotic Bait on July 8th. Also, for all you LA folks that want to see them live, French Style Furs will be starting a Monday night residency at The Satellite this June.
